4-Nov-2014 Melbourne Cup

Tuesday 4 November 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Call me un-Australian or whatever but I don’t care about the Melbourne Cup and never have. Sorry. A large percentage of people in the city use it as an excuse to bludge off work and drink to excess and I don’t think any one really cares about the racing.

I don’t like gambling. I do take part in the office sweep where refusal offends. This year I put bought one $2 ticket – options were $2, $5 and $10. I won $10 but it won’t change my opinion.
Horse-racing is not good for the horses either – on a variety of levels – this year two horses died in the Melbourne Cup alone!
No I didn’t have any alcohol.  I had a normal lunch (plain fresh tomato soup today) and went to the gym after work. They are more my sort of people !
I love this cartoon in the Guardian (click to make it larger):
